New Amsterdam Invest N.V. results first six months 2023




AMSTERDAM, Sept. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — New Amsterdam Invest N.V. (the “Company”, or “New Amsterdam Invest”, or “NAI”), a commercial real estate company listed on Euronext Amsterdam, announces its non-audited results for the first six months ended 30 June 2023, today[1].

Highlights 2023 Half Year[2]

  • Approval of business combination with Somerset Park B.V. and start of operations as an operating company in the commercial real estate sector
  • Net Rental Income first half of 2023, effectively from 2 to 30 June 2023: €0.5 million (2022HY: €0.0)
  • Result from real estate operations 2 to 30 June 2023: €0.1 million
  • Net result first half of 2023: -€2.6 million mainly driven by one-off valuation differences (non-cash) and expenses to realize the business combination (2022HY: -€1.2 million)
  • Earnings per share first half of 2023: -€0.50 (2022HY: -€0.24)
  • Net increase in Cash position in first half of 2023: €5.8 million (2022HY: €0.1 million)
  • Total Assets per 30 June 2023 €76.5 million (2022YE: 48.9 million)
  • Solvency per 30 June 2023: 60.3% (2022YE: 99.5%)

Aren van Dam, CEO of New Amsterdam Invest commented: “It is with proud and confidence that we look back at the first six months of 2023 where we have laid a sound foundation for our Company and its business going forward. It was not easy to establish a business combination for commercial real estate in the past period. Nevertheless, we succeeded to start with an outstanding portfolio in the UK and US, expanding further already in the second month after the business combination clearly showing the strength of our proposition.

That being said, 2023 is a transitional year for New Amsterdam Invest. As a result of different regulatory requirement around the transition from SPAC to operational company we have to take significant non-cash one-off costs making 2023 overall loss-making. Going forward we expect to be profitable and well on track in 2024 to realize the financial objectives we have set out at listing.”

Summary results for the first six months of 2023

The greater part of the first half of 2023 was devoted to management efforts to realize a business combination for the special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) New Amsterdam Invest. It turned out not to be easy to identify one or more operating companies in the real estate industry, which would meet most of the Company’s financial and quantitative parameters. On that basis, the Company decided to look for multiple operating companies that could be grouped together in a business combination meeting the required parameters and factors.

On 2 June 2023, the Company shareholders’ approved the incorporation of Somerset Park B.V. (“Somerset Park”) as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company with the intention to maintain a group of commercial investments under Somerset Park. Subsequently, the status of the Company as a SPAC ended (“de-SPAC”). Somerset Park, along with management and operating companies in relevant jurisdictions, form a group of international companies in the commercial real estate industry.

As a result, the Company operated for most of the first half year as a SPAC and only for the last four weeks in HY 2023 as an international operating company for commercial real estate. This implies that the results for the first half year are not characteristic for the Company’s regular operational results going forward. Showing a net income of €0.1 million the real estate operations over this period where profitable.

Result for the period


The reported result for the first half year 2023 amounts to €2.6 million loss.

This result is mainly attributable to a number of mainly non-cash one-offs to realize the transition from SPAC to a group of operating companies in commercial real estate like €0.5 million on the required documentation (Circular) as well as a required revaluation under IFRS of investment property of €2.3 million. A positive contributor was €0.5 million in interest received on the Escrow account. The running costs prior to the Business Combination came at €0.3 million.

The results from group companies have been included and consolidated within The Company’s Accounts results for periods from 2 June 2023 to 30 June 2023.

Number of shares issued per 30 June 2023

In addition, the Company has issued a total of 4,910,250 Warrants (IPO and BC) that will automatically and mandatorily convert when the closing price of the Ordinary Shares on Euronext Amsterdam reaches the Share Price Hurdle being €11,50 per share, without any further action being required from the Warrant Holder. The Share Price Hurdle will be met when the share closing price for available shares on Euronext is at the target price for at least 15 out of 30 consecutive trading days. If the hurdle is reached the Warrants will be converted into Ordinary Shares corresponding with the Warrant Conversion Ratio of 0.15, or 6.67 Warrants per Ordinary Share.


As a result of different regulatory requirement in connection with the transition from SPAC to operational company, one-off costs where required as a result of which 2023 overall is expected to be loss-making. Going forward we expect to be profitable and well on track in 2024 to realize the financial objectives we have set out at listing. More specific we expect to realize a 2024 net rental income of approximately €6.6 million and a result before tax of
€2.6 million[4]

Relevant events after 30 June 2023

As announced on 19 July, the Company purchased Forthstone, a unique commercial property located in Edinburgh, with a long-term lease agreement with its tenant. With this purchase, the Company will add a sixth property to its portfolio and in line with the Company’s business objectives and strategy for growth.
